THERE was a row over payment of sex services between a hooker and an unidentified young man at a local pub recently attracting attention of revellers.
The man claimed to have paid through EcoCash but the hooker insisted that she had not received her money.
Speaking to H-Metro over the scuffle, the man professed innocence and said he had paid the sex worker. He promised to bring her to H-Metro to confirm payment but never came back.
“She gave me a number to send the US$20 payment and I sent the money,” he explained.
“I sent that money in the morning but she had gone out and I left. However, I had doubts about the number so I pretended as if I wanted to send money to it via EcoCash so that I verify the owner of the number.
“I then discovered it was a man’s name appearing and I thought I had sent to the wrong number.
“I called Econet and asked them to send me back the money but they refused saying the receiver had to agree first so they set up a conference call with him. Unfortunately the conference call did not last long after his phone switched off during the call.
“The EcoCash guys then froze his number pending a natural settlement to the matter as he had only used 50 cents of the US$20 I had sent him.
“I then went back to the club the following day and that is when they started harassing me saying I had not paid. Would I go back to the same club where she would see me if I had not paid her or stolen her money?”
The young man pleaded with H-Metro not to publish the story as the money would eventually get to the sex worker since he had called to cancel the report he made to Econet.
He promised to come back with the hooker to prove that they were in good books but never did.
